Water Falling Estate Back on the Market

With thundering twin waterfalls, endless ocean vistas, and an Olympic-sized infinity pool, “Water Falling Estate” is easily the most striking property along the Big Island’s Hamakua Coast.

Waterfalling Estate

Originally offered at $26.5 million in 2013, and later purchased at auction by Kansas City entrepreneur Charles Floyd Anderson and his wife, this 9.44 acre marvel spanning three streams is now back on the market for less than half of its previous listing price.

“At $10 million, this estate is now priced very competitively”, said Kelly H. Moran, principle broker of Hilo Brokers Ltd, adding “this is a total trophy property.”

According to Moran, the current owners decided to sell the estate in order to be closer to their grandchildren in Missouri.  “They’re very rooted in family,” he explained, adding “this is a lifestyle choice, primarily.”

The property has gained international recognition for its rare combination of natural features, as well as its uniquely designed home: a 10,942 square foot three-story concrete superstructure perched high along an ocean bluff, with commanding views of the streams and waterfalls below.

Waterfalling Estate Tennis Court

A professional-grade tennis stadium and basketball court sit adjacent to the home, which is surrounded by eight-plus acres of golf-style landscaping.

Hilo Brokers listed the property for sale as of  July 31st.
